Former NFL wideout Josh Gordon had himself a night on Saturday. The pass catcher absolutely went off in an XFL matchup for the Seattle Sea Dragons.

His performance is now going viral on social media.

Seattle squared off against Vegas over the weekend in the third week of the XFL season. Gordon, who’s been in and out of the NFL over the last few years, is reigniting his career this Spring. Last year, he spent time on the Titans’ roster, but he didn’t haul in a catch despite being active for two games.

His production in Seattle, however, is skyrocketing.

In Saturday’s contest, Josh Gordon hauled in six catches for 118 yards and a pair of scores. That included a game-winning touchdown in the final minute of play.

That only added to his league leading receiving mark. Gordon’s now tallied 343 yards through three games. His latest performance has fans talking online.

Some foresee an NFL comeback this fall.

Maybe a return to Tennessee next season?

He’s certainly got the talent to compete on the field. This is a player that led the league in receiving in 2013 and has a career average of 17 yards per reception.

Suspensions, unfortunately, severely stunted his career.

Josh Gordon is lighting up the XFL this year, and he doesn’t appear to be slowing down anytime soon. Let’s see if he’s able to buoy that into another gig soon.
